Russian official: If Iran attacks Israel, we’ll stand with you


The Times of Israel: Were Iran to attack Israel, Moscow would stand by the Jewish state’s side, a Russian official said this week, days after an Iranian-made drone infiltrated Israel from Syria and was shot down by the IDF.

“In the case of aggression against Israel, not only will the United States stand by Israel’s side — Russia, too, will be on Israel’s side,” Russian Deputy Ambassador to Israel Leonid Frolov said. “Many of our countrymen live here in Israel, and Israel in general is a friendly nation, and therefore we won’t allow any aggression against Israel”. more …

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY: How ironic that in the future war of Gog and Magog as prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39, Russia will be dragged into attacking Israel with ‘hooks in the jaw’ and the United States is nowhere to be found except for possibly Ezekiel 38:13:

Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?”

Jack Kelley (gracethrufaith.com): “Sheba and Dedan are cities in Saudi Arabia. Some Bible scholars consider Tarshish to be the sea going navies of the Phoenicians, who operated out of nearby Cadiz. The Phoenicians sailed as far north as England for tin, a metal used in the making of bronze and other alloys, which they mined in Cornwall, and which leads some to connect Tarshish with England.”

It may be that the name Britannia is actually derived from a Phoenician word meaning “source of tin.” If so, this reference could be to Great Britain making the “lions” (KJV) or “villages” (NIV) of Tarshish Great Britain’s colonies, of which the US is most prominent today. The fact that the lion is a symbol of the British Empire lends support to this view.”

There will be no need for any nation to come to Israel’s aid since God will have it covered:

I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 38:21-23

Amir speaks about Netanyahu’s case and regional developments in Israel, Syria, Iran, Turkey and Lebanon in light of the Bible.

… first one will be about Benjamin Netanyahu, there were a lot of false rumors and fake news throughout the media and the social media regarding a soon resignation.

We’re going to talk about a very major mistake that Bashar al-asad together with Russian forces made a few days ago. We’re
gonna talk about the American quiet involvement in what’s going on in Syria and we’re also going to talk about the situation with the Turkish troops in northern Syria…

PREPARING FOR WAR IN THE NORTH, ISRAEL BOOSTS AIR DEFENSES


iron domeIsrael has boosted its air defense in the North following a significant confrontation between the Jewish state, Syria and Iran that led to the loss of an F-16i fighter jet.

While the army refused to comment on the reports, witnesses reported seeing a convoy of missile-defense batteries heading north near the Israeli-Arab city of Baka al-Gharbiya. Other witnesses posted photos of several trucks carrying the batteries on central highways in northern Israel.

Israel’s air defenses currently include the Iron Dome, designed to shoot down short-range rockets; the Arrow system, which intercepts ballistic missiles outside of the Earth’s atmosphere; and the David’s Sling missile-defense system, which is designed to intercept tactical ballistic missiles, medium- to long-range rockets and cruise missiles fired from ranges of between 40 km to 300 km.

Israel also has Patriot-missile batteries stationed in the North and has used them to intercept drones infiltrating into Israeli airspace from Syria. In September, an Iranian-built unmanned aerial vehicle breached the “Bravo line” that marks the Syrian demilitarized zone, and was intercepted by an Israeli Patriot anti-ballistic missile launched from a station near the northern city of Safed…. more
